General Course Guidelines:
None of the upper-division courses listed below require the BA/BS major core curriculum as prerequisites; some require other non-EPS courses or instructor permission. Most minors take EPS 101, 20L, and 105L in preparation for taking the upper-division classes. Upper-division courses that are strong complements to majors in Biology (B), Anthropology (A) and Computer Science (C) are indicated. Instructors and frequency of offering are subject to change.
Advising: It is recommended that you seek advice of the E&PS Departmental Undergraduate Advisor early for course recommendations based on your other academic interests and career plans. Contact Professor Laura Crossey, 277-5349, email@example.com, or Professor Maya Elrick, 277-5077; firstname.lastname@example.org.
